No one wants to be an employee for the rest of their lives. And if you have the opportunity and the means to start a business of your own, what is stopping you from doing so? Making the decision to establish your own company is a big step since it means stepping outside of your comfort zone and attempting something that could either make you successful or bankrupt.
Sure, there are risks involved and it would eat up a lot of your time and would demand a lot of effort from you. But the potential rewards if you are willing to try are worth it.
You will be doing what you love
Most of us are stuck in dead end jobs and when asked, the majority will say it is not what they dreamt of doing as a career. This is the number one reason why most people start their own business; they want to start doing what they love. They want to pursue their aspirations and passions.
Working for someone else will not be able to satisfy and fulfill us, as opposed to working towards our ambitions. As the famous saying goes, “build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs.” Every day they are one step closer to their dreams while you are stepping farther away from yours.
You will be financially independent
This might not be an achievement right off the bat but there are people who have started their own business who achieved financial security. True, it might take you years (or it might not even be possible), but if you are tenacious and focused, you could make it happen. You could make sure that your business is profitable, thanks to your perseverance and hard work. If you will always think about and focus on your financial goals, your own business could help you become financially independent.
You will be in control of your time
The thing with being employed is that you are always on the clock. You need to sign in and sign out and be on time in the morning and leave only after you clock in 8-9 or even 12 hours of work. Sure, there are those whose timing is flexible but it is still being different from being your own boss. When you have your own business, you will be in control of your time and lifestyle.
You will feel less trapped when you work around the lifestyle you prefer. You are more productive in the evening? You could work nights when you are your own boss. Fancy taking a break? You, can! You would not need to ask beforehand for a scheduled time off when you feel burnt out. Of course, it would be up to you to monitor yourself to get the job done but at least you would be able to do it more productively and efficiently without someone breathing down your neck.
If all these are still not enough to entice you to start your own business, it would be more rewarding for you to take charge of your own destiny.
